Hebrews 6:13-20 New International Version (NIV)
The Certainty of God’s Promise
13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.” 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.
16 People swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument. 17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath.18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie,we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.
19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
ANCHOR HOLDS ~
Trough my life time, I've had to hold onto the unknown days. Wondering why and when God would answer my prayers. Yet, it was through those days that God sent people into my life to encourage me and help me grow in him. I had to hold onto my own faith in God and know that he would help. For example: My son was 2 years old when I told he had a disease that would take his life. The doctor gave him about 3 days to live. He had something that made his joints of his body swell up. It would close off his throat at some people and wouldn't be able to breathe. My husband and I began to pray, but I called others to pray too. God heard the deepest cry of my heart and my son lived. He is now grown and has two children. God is amazing how I saw this miracle before my eyes but also many others who attended our church saw this too.
There are things in life that brings us to our anchor. Trusting God and holding on when we don't see the answer. A deep trust in God, love beyond words and faith that reaches way into the sky. The Bible says: Luke 1:37 English Standard Version (ESV)
For nothing will be impossible with God.
I don't know what you are facing today, but I do know that God is able. My prayers are with you, your family and friends. Be encouraged today and find scriptures in the Bible that helps to encourage you and someone else. Our lives are here for a short time. Our example matters to others and God's plan continues to unfold for our lives. Purpose this a good day!
